Prominent novelist, Alaa al-Aswany, predicts that the results of the run-off of Egypt's presidential election will be forged in favor of presidential candidate Ahmed Shafiq whose victory will be announced by the Presidential Elections Committee.
Aswany described the Muslim Brotherhood's Mohamed Mursi as the "legitimate president", insisting that the revolutionary stance requires defending him.
"I hope that Mohamed Mursi and the Muslim Brotherhood will not let us down and make deals with the ruling military council, behind our backs, like they did before", Aswany added on Al-Jazeera.
Aswany accused the ruling military council of executing a long-term plan to turn people against the revolution and promote Ahmed Shafiq, who served as toppled President Hosni Mubarak's last premier. He added that a large number of satellite channels are accomplices in this plan.
